Newest Theater Company, Twin Bill Theater, Debuts with Dog Sees God


Dog Sees God

Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead is a play written by Bert V. Royal.

Dog Sees God

An “unauthorized parody,” the play imagines characters from the popular comic strip Peanuts as teenagers. Drug use, child sexual abuse, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion, sexual relations and identity are among the issues covered in this drama.

In 2004 Dog sees God was one of the breakout hits at the New York International Fringe Festival, winning the Excellence Award for Best Overall Production, as well as Theatermania’s Play Award of 2004, the GLAAD Media Award for Best Off-Off-Broadway production, Broadway.com‘s 2006 Audience Award for Favorite Off-Broadway Production and the 2006 HX Award for Best Play.

Featuring Nelsito Gomez, Sarah Facurii, Gab Medina, Vince Lim, Maronne Cruz, Kathleen Francisco, Brian Sy, and Camille Velicaria.

Directed by Steven Conde

HERE’S WHAT THE CRITICS SAY about “Dog sees God“:

“Good grief! The Peanuts kids have finally come out of their shells.” —Time Out NY.

“A welcome antidote to the notion that the Peanuts gang provides merely a slice of American cuteness.” —NY Times. ”

…easily identifiable with the Peanuts crowd yet with a distinctly ‘Royal’ touch…The way Royal builds on the foundation of Charles Schulz’s iconic comic strip actually results in a parody that’s also a stand-alone play apt to resonate even with anyone belonging to that small population segment unfamiliar with Peanuts.” —CurtainUp.

“Inventive and raunchy…hysterically funny.” —NY Post.

 

“Bert V. Royal is the playwright of the Off-Broadway show DOG SEES GOD: CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE BLOCKHEAD and is he ready to confess all!” —Broadway.com.

 

DOG SEES GOD doesn’t feel like the same old high-school-warfare schlock. The characters—teenage and reckless—are both genuinely sympathetic and unquestionably cruel. Growing more hysterical—and more harrowing—as it flows to an inevitable, uncomfortable end, this taut comedy manages to make tired clichés about stoners and popular homecoming airheads funny and endearing.”

—NY Magazine.
